U.S. Commits $1.65 Billion to the Global Fund: Seven Times Greater Than the Next Largest Donor

The U.S. is the largest investor in the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria, established in January 2002, as the premier multilateral institution dedicated to fighting AIDS.

  • President Bush, in his Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, increased the U.S. pledge to $1.65 billion, approximately half of the $3.37 billion in total pledges to the Fund from all countries.
  • Among major donor countries, only the U.S., Germany, and Ireland have pledged additional funds following their initial contributions.
  • U.S. contributions to the Global Fund represent $275 million of $864 million, or 32 percent of the Fund’s total cash on hand at the end of 2002.
